WHERE ARE YOU BOTH FROM

Cristi was born in Toowoomba but has lived in Townsville for most of his life. Grace was born and lives in Townsville.

HOW DID YOU MEET?

Grace worked at Loloma dur­ing her uni de­gree and at­tended the Stock­land Re­tail Awards night. Cristi plays for lo­cal band The God­fa­thers of Funk, who were the en­ter­tain­ment at the awards night. Grace and some of her Loloma team­mates got to the stage and sang Mus­tang Sally. This is where Cristi and Grace first met.

WHERE WAS THE CER­E­MONY?

The re­mark­able Sa­cred Heart Cathe­dral, of­fi­ci­ated by Fa­ther Dave Lancini, who has known both Cristi and Grace since they were chil­dren.

WHERE WAS THE RE­CEP­TION?

Cristi and Grace wanted a view of the ocean for their re­cep­tion and couldn’t go past the Pier Restau­rant. It looked ab­so­lutely spec­tac­u­lar with fresh flow­ers, fairy lights and a cheese wheel wed­ding cake!

WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST DANCE SONG?

How Would You Feel by Ed Sheeran as Cristi and Grace both love Ed! But the most im­por­tant song of the night was the one Cristi sang to Grace — Per­fect by Ed Sheeran. This was a com­plete sur­prise on the evening.

WHERE WAS YOUR HON­EY­MOON?

Cristi and Grace splurged and spent two weeks in Queen­stown New Zealand and two weeks in Hawaii. They couldn’t de­cide be­tween snow and fire­places or sun and beaches so de­cided to do both.
